a bunch of democrats saying we don't want any spending cuts, entitlement cuts, nothing. just pass the debt ceiling. no spending. >> do whatever it takes. apparently the hurdle is some legality. not whether it's a good idea, not whether it calls into question the independence of the central bank, the independence of whether the treasury will now have the new power to print money whatever it has. as long as it's legal. let me tell you. of all these options, the magic coin option, the 14th amendment may be the worst option. it will be challenged in court. the court moves forward. you end up with two classes of u.s. debt, one which people have a lot of confidence in, then this different class of debt which was created under this who knows what new legal authority that they found. >> this is the point. let me go right. the i.o.u. this is interesting. edward klinebard, former chief of staff at the congressional joint committee on taxation is now teaching law at the university of southern california. now, he says that congress has constitutional authority to raise the debt and only the congress.
security and healthcare health related entitlements and you don't have a problem. that is sort of like saying on pluti i would be svelte. i'm not sure i buy the analogy. it is what it is. medicaid and medicare and down the road social security they are all suffering from the same problem too little money coming in for the money going out now or soon to go out. >> you are giving the president even too much credit there. if you read what the left is saying about the budget problem reit now what they are saying is it is a healthcare problem and they don't mean a medicare medicaid problem. they would say it is the private sector healthcare costs that are out of control and that is why we can't get any of the other spending under control. >> neil: even if you worked on healthcare tonight you would still have a lot of headache tomorrow. i can not see the guy who looks at these books i would assume more than i do because he is the president then he would quickly understand money in/money out. >> this is the reason why if you listen to you played that clip b nancy pelosi saying we will look fo
look unprepared in any way? don't be ridiculous. representative john yarmouth coming up on the big show today. we're getting a serious gun control debate in this country. how about that. >> we are. we're going to have the conversation. the idea is to keep the momentum going. people are outraged after newtown that it is time to do something. we have to keep the momentum going in order to get something done. >> stephanie: i thought wow gabby giffords and her husband a lot of the stuff they said -- >> powerful. >> stephanie: both gun owners, both second amendment people but just -- who more powerfully can make that case? >> 11 mass shootings since tucson. >> stephanie: i know. we'll get into all of it. here she is, jacki schechner in the current news center. >> good morning, everybody. vice president biden is holding a meeting at the white house today with victims' groups and gun safety organizations. this is the next in a series of meetings. that administration officials are having with stakeholders as they look at recommendations to hand to the president by the end of the month on how we
barnes thank you very thank you very much. >> time for your comments, craig, i get the impression you don't think that republicans are very effective negotiators, so far you are correct. jean said, i'm getting to be more and more of a dobbs fan, common sense questioning, thank you, keep then coming and the unkind words as well. we love hearing from you, good night from new york. >> who needs a hot miss alabama in the stands? cbs has a ton of cool cash and a drop dead gorgeous super bowl record on its hand, sold out as the bilge game is still -- big game is still weeks from oforget $ 4 million bucks for a 30 second spot is worth the price of the game. imagine if we clock the same rate, ogling the quarterback's girlfriend just watching the game, a little dirty, but undeny abily, pay dirt. i am neil cavuto, believe it or not it took seeks longer than other super bowl broadcasters in the past to reach this sell out point but as ceo leslie moonves thought, why not cheat when kuwait and score. considering the economy that many argue is slowing. and a financial sector busy paying billions to a g
was the least rotten apple they could have gotten. >> paul: a rancid deal and i don't like the spinach reference. how much damage is there to the economy from in bill? >> well, i prefer the least rotten apple than spinach. i think that the two big problems here, people who believe that the rich should pay more do not understand the effects of marginal rates. when you raise marginal rates-- >> the next dollar of income that you earn. >> right, it lowers the incentive of the people that you want it take risk and to innovate and to create. that's one problem. so it will affect the growth of the economy. the other problem is, it does affect tax revenues. the guys with the green eye shades say well if we raise the taxes this much, we'll get this much more revenue. if you lower the incentive of people to take risk, generally what happens, revenue does not come in. >> paul: you don't get as much as you think you'll do. >> exactly. >> here, mary, look, the economy seemed, the stock market loved it, the hs blew out the next day and up based on the prospect that something would get d
and reasonable gun regulations? >> as i said earlier on the show, i don't think we will. i did speak to the chair of the house judiciary committee about this issue on the floor last friday, and i was pleased to hear that he said we would have hearings, or some type of consideration, but he didn't give me an indication that he would be in favor or that he thought we would pass a bill that would limit access to any type of weapons including high capacity magazines or, you know, maybe mental health laws might come about but i don't think the high capacity and assault magazines would have much favor there. you can get a bill from the senate and ever an amendment to a bill that came from the the house and amend it to have some other subject matter, like guns, and maybe the house would have to deal with it, but we saw speaker boehner because of the reticenco of the tea party to tax anybody in america, couldn't get to the floor. he was finally forced to because of embarrassment. maybe that will happen. if it happens at all it will come from the senate. the american public will have to rise up and be be
. this is something that don rumsfeld tried and failed to do. it's something that bob gates tried and failed to do in any serious way. and now, given the budget pressures, this is going to be the moment for performance. >> rose: a couple of points, i guess. rumsfeld would argue that we had a big war came along and bob gates would argue that in the end he did cut it somewhat. >> somewhat. but if you look at the total national security budget, charlie, which would be not just the pentagon but also the intelligence agencies, homeland security, it's basically doubled since the 9/11 attacks. >> rose: and weapons systems you don't really need in the judgment of many people other than those people who represent the districts where they're located. >> leftovers from the cold war and, remember, the president himself came in supported by chuck hagel on this point with the thought that there was a moment here to really build down on the nuclear force. and so far they have not been able to do that except some modest cuts when they passed the start treaty with russia early in the president's time. >> rose: tal
a study on us. the joke is a study to me he met i don't know, maybe the guy with the gold shirt will help them. [laughter] [talking over each other] >> all right,. melissa: that is all the "money" we have for you today. "the willis report" is coming up next. gerri: tonight, welfare recipients taking out cash outstripped countless we have details of a disturbing new story. welcome to "the willis report" we begin tonight with fears of tighter gun restrictions across the u.s. now there is growing concern say new legislation may soon put them out of business. joining me now is north american firearms. a gun store outside of chicago. welcome to you all. it's great to have you here. i am going to start with bernadette. take a look at the numbers here. it is unbelievable. we have had twice as many gun sales in november to december, as many background checks on the same time a year ago. it is astonishing how many guns are being sold across this country. what are your customers telling you about why they are buying? >> they are saying if they don't buy the guns now, they fear for the band. not onl
they are buying? >> they are saying if they don't buy the guns now, they fear for the band. not only here in the state of illinois, but of course in the united states. and theears are now more than they ever have been. gerri: essentially we are talking about the president having a working group. we don't really know what they are yet, although we have said universal background checks for all gun buyers, mental health examinations and tougher penalties for those carrying firearms near schools. that is what the white house is talking about. a lot of people don't like this. tell me, what are you afraid of? what do you think this is bringing on for you? >> well, you kno the main thing is it is all speclation. what it is doing is clearing out and on the surface that may seem good for business. but the problem is our distributors and the people that we actually purchase our weapons from for our customers -- they are holding back amongst everything. you know, the whole gun industry just in general is out of whack. everything is out of whack. gerri: you told our producers that you are afraid that
generally that revenue doesn't come in. >> paul: so you don't get as much as you think. mary, the economy seems to be -- the stock market loved this. they blew out the next day and based on the prospect something would get done. how long go market is recovering. the economy and job market still not great, 155,000 new jobs, but the economy does seem to be doing okay. >> i think that is probably okay. the economy will do okay. but when you have an unemployment at 7.8% and really stubbornly not budging, you want to do something that something more for the economy than just okay, muddling through. if you are president you can say why you are feeling it but there are lot of people feeling the slow growth. it's disappointing we weren't able to do something has more of a positive impact. >> there were a couple big words attached. one was uncertainty, the economy needed certainty and the other was a prospect of a recession. i think the deal undoubtedly does avoid a recession. we're not going to have negative growth, but we are probably going to have growth as we have had for the last two years of
. 1866-55-press. don't go anywhere. this show is going to be so exciting. but before we do that, i want to find out what's going on in the news. lisa ferguson all the way in los angeles, tell me what's happening? >> welcome back, richard. good morning. gun control room policy is front and center this week. first was yesterday's two-year anniversary of a the tucson shoot that nearly killed gabby gifford. she and her husband have announced americans for responsible solutions, aimed at offsetting the nra's influence in american politics. today and tomorrow have some high-level meetings on tap for washington. vice president joe biden will meet with victim's groups and gun safety organizations at 11:00 this moraling and tomorrow, sitting down with other groups. >> it is not a problem that can be solved by any specific action. it's a problem that encompasses issues of mental health education, as well as access to guns. >> majority leader harry reid could change his stance on gun control. he is a long-time supporter of gun owners' writes and slipped am
these matters resolved? look, the biggest problem confronting the country is not taxes, it's spending. we don't have this problem because we tax too little. we have it because we spend too much. we now have a $16.4 trillion national debt, as big as our economy. that alone makes us look a lot like greece. this administration has driven spending from 21% of our economy up to almost 25% of our economy. we've got to stop using the credit card, and any opportunity we have to engage the other side in a discussion about quitting the spending spree, we're going to engage in. >> and the question is, how do you follow through on your strategy, and, you know, a lot of your allies are worried about that prospect. "the wall street journal" editorial page said "the political result would be far worse if republicans start this fight only to cave in the end. you can't take a hostage you aren't prepared to shoot. do the two gop leaders have a better strategy today than they did in 2011?" and i guess you're hearing that phrase more and more now, shoot the hostage. are you prepared to do it, to see the country
was no underwriting. this lender by the way saddled with the new york attorney general's office because i don't know of you guys remember, it was called the preferred lender list where you know lenders were in some cases accused of paying b-schools for preferential treatment and for them to steer students toward a particular loan products. that was the case with this lender. when you think about, you can sort of understand some of the anger and how a generation may rightly feel very duped in some ways and stock with very little relief at this point now that they are so far in debt. >> now a look at the tenure and legacy of house speaker john boehner. we will show you as much of the "washington journal" segment as we can until the richard nixon 100 birthday gala in about half an hour. >> host: on wednesday here in the "washington journal" in our last hour taking look at a recent magazine piece. we are joined by robert costa at national review to talk about a couple of pieces you have written. we will start with the most recent. "boehner the survivor" is what you wrote on january 4, 2014. 13, excuse m

with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't walk through an airport metal detector and not get reminded of the shrapnel he took in that sad but heroic american war. the president wants chuck hagel in that post because he thinks like him and has proven he's got the brains to protect this country. hagel long ago proved he's got the heart. don't you think? i don't hate the people trying to stop the president from picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton woul
and probably senior democrat on the committee, so that, to me is part of the problem in the system and i don't to continue. >> why do you think they would be interested in putting the money there? let's look at it. i said the year of the flood comes every other year now, it seems. as congressman jeffries said new york and new jersey are donor states. if we got back what we gave to washington we wouldn't being have this discussion. we could take care of ourselves, but we don't. but the likelihood of places like mississippi, louisiana, florida and the gulf coast states will get a lot faster than we are and what's going to happen now is you're going to have members of congress from new york and new jersey and connecticut in the northeast states that may say, you know what? we're going to parcel out aid to you more slowly than you gave it to us. >> so this is what i learned this week in preparation for this. our flood policy is a total disaster? >> yes. >> and you've had this experience first hand. it's really important. it may sound remote to you, but listen to me, we'll have more floods so we
to say i'm not going to pay my bills unless you stop being stuff? well, then stop buying stuff so you don't have future bills but right now we have to pay the bills that have been incurred. >> shepard: the president said on saturday that he will not compromise over raising the debt ceiling. won't even put that on the table. shannon bream with the news live in washington this afternoon. how you is this strategy work out for republicans, shannon? >> shannon: the president says if they refuse everyone from business owners to average americans will suffer but republicans are calling his bluff saying the debt ceiling gives them leverage that will force democrats to get serious about spending cuts and entitlement reform. here is house republican jim jordan. >> let's do it for a change instead of saying oh, give us more revenue and we promise we will cut spending later. give us more borrowing authority and let us run up the credit card more. we promise we will cut -- this is lucy and charlie brown on the football and the american people are saying we are not going to try to kick it this time. >>
. i'm deborah feyerick in for don lemon. let's get you up to speed. a big announcement expected tomorrow in washington. sources tell cnn that president obama is going to cross party lines and announce former republican senator chuck hagel as his nominee for defense secretary. but hagel has critics on capitol hill even among republicans. the question is his past views on several issues, including israel. >> chuck hagel if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. >> we'll have more in a few moments. >>> help is on the way for people who lost so much during superstorm sandy. president obama signed into law today a $9.7 billion sandy disaster relief package. it was the first legislative action of the new congress. a larger sandy aid package will have to wait. lawmakers will consider $51 billion relief bill on january 15th. some people were outraged after house speaker boehner canceled a vote tuesday on the entire aid package. sandy devastated parts of the northeast more than two month
hunted. you know, colorado is a big hunting state. and i don't think anyone that i have ever met that is a responsible gun owner can side with these, you know, for lack of a better word, these loony tunes who are out here because they're doing something different. they're stockpiling. they're getting assault rifles. these are not normal gun owners. what you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they're being allowed to speak for the pro-second amendment crowd. >> david, we're going to show the worst of the worst in a minute, but first your thoughts. will the regular gun owners, the people that are in the nra in pennsylvania and they vote, democrat or republican, are they going to go with the crazies like james yeager? we're going to show him and alex jones again. >> you know what's crucial to this is what clinton did back in '94. remember, he got an assault weapons ban through congress over the nra opposition and opposition to many republicans and some democrats, and the way he got it was by bringing the cops, the police -- >> but how many seats did he l

and social security barcia you don't want to pay our billions you do that in public. we're not even going to talk to you. the white house i think is going to buck up and do what the left wants. in terms of the debt limit, it's a sequester where you're going to see a lot more of a messy -- andrea: on the debt limit, is the white house prepared to actually go over that limit and >> i think they think in the end -- andrea: another game of chicken. >> the republicans always say they won't do it. of course we won't default. but then they -- >> and you've got a house speaker who has been threatened here. and he now has that right flank. and he's going to stand firm. and the polls show in the country by the way, that when you ask people would you like some balance, which everyone seems to be talking about, the answer is yes. and they understand that they got this -- the tax issue done so now they're going to look at spending cuts. andrea: gloria, i want to show all of us something here. just to remind us of a different time. this is an image that says a lot about what washington used to be. tom
don't want them here, alluding to those who might benefit from the d.r.e.a.m. act. so republicans have their own pr campaign to conduct with latinos on immigration reform, but how is the president going to combat republicans who want to see a more piece meal approach as we move forward here? >> reporter: i think we've seen the way the president has handled other recent challenges from his republican opposition when you consider just the fiscal cliff hanger as it were with campaign stops in various parts of the country. consider a statistic that i think a lot of americans are going to refocus on is the immigration conversation returns to the fore. it's the fact that the president won 70% of the hispanic vote in this past election. a dramatic -- dramatic element in his success and obviously the republican party recognizes it's harsh language, some rhetoric used by mitt romney and other republicans around the country didn't help its chance of gaining support within that community. john boehner, the speaker of the house, has said that they need to have a more practical, a more pragmatic ap
dealt with at once. deal with the weapons that you think you need to deal with. but if you don't deal with mental health issues, you don't deal with substance abuse issues, and you don't deal with violence in the video games in the media, if you don't deal with all of it, you're not going to eliminate the problem, or even reduce the problem, in my view. >> chris christie was rightly praised for his leadership in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. no doubt about it, he stood up to his party for their actions and how they didn't do what they were supposed to do early on to get relief from congress. but now is the time for real leadership, passing the buck on to the entertainment industry, governor, is nothing but a cop-out. it's a great way to divert attention from a politically delicate situation and difficult position. >> i don't let games like call of duty in my house for ps3 and xbox. that's a decision mary pat and i have made. you cannot tell me sitting in the basement for hours playing call of duty and killing people over and over and over again does not desensitize that child to t
with this administration. first of all on what would make a difference. we don't think a ban on so-called assault weapons which hasn't worked in the past will work this time. >> one of the major pieces the vice president appears to be focused on is not the assault weapons ban but background checks. >> there's a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just close the gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> and the "washington post" reports today the white house is at least considering an nra proposal to fund police in schools, that's something now being pushed by democratic senator barbara boxer. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and ryan grim. good to see you both. >> good morning. >> the nra said and i'm quoting here, we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. ruth, nobody thought the nra would come out of this meeting and say we've totally changed ou
